Taking stock

It’s important every now and then to take stock of our lives and ask ourselves, where am I going? Am I still on track? One of the most enduring images of the Christian life is that of a journey through this brief and transient life to our true destiny in the eternal Kingdom of God. It’s a journey of faith whose guiding star is the conviction that ‘God is, and rewards those who diligently seek Him.’ Faith taps into that deep well of spiritual reality that lies, often hidden, within us all. Faith is the intuitive understanding that those spiritual realities are true and accessible.
But faith is not gullibility – believing every nonsensical thing that religious charlatans try to sell us. Nor is it just an intellectual acceptance of obvious facts. Faith is our own spiritual perception of what our innermost being tells us is true.
